The Celtics re-signed Davis this summer to a two-year contract worth $6.3 million. The Boston Globe reported that owner Wyc Grousbeck is considering suspending Davis for his actions.
"Wyc has been on the warpath for two days over this," a league source told Yahoo! Sports. "They want to get money back from him."- Yahoo Sports' Marc J Spears
Update: Our resident Cap Expert Roy Hobbs points out in the comments that the above mentioned concept of the Celtics' getting money back from Glen is severely flawed. Monies recovered from a player go to charity, not to the team
Thoughts and more quotes after the break.
My first reaction was "no-no-no-no-no" because every time a team goes after an athlete's money it seems petty, but I can't fault the team for wanting to get money back when their player was injured in an incident that was entirely preventable, and was completely unrelated to basketball.
More from Spears
The team has been hurting financially, the source said, and Grousbeck sees this as an opportunity to recoup some of Davis’ salary..
Hurting financially? Where did that come from? At some point I want to ask "who is this source"? But Spears is a good reporter, so I see no reason not to believe him. However, comments such as those above really smack of exaggerated rumors based on some small grain of truth (such as they made less money last year than the championship season).
